. >> criminal defense attorney and former prosecutor, cnn legal contributor. hello, ba paul. >> good morning, carol. surely the judge has heard this, do you think? >> oh, yes. the drama last night when networks were trying to figure out if this was for real or a prank. people were shocked that he would submit this to a college radio station. a lot of us were worried that this might be aa college prank but it is for real. >> how will it factor into his decision? >> he will look at a 45-count indictment and conviction. he will look at the fact that there are ten boys who were sexually abused over a 15-year period and also sandusky's background a. when this tape comes up, the context will be -- lot of times a judge will look at the defendant and say does he feel sorry for the crime he committed? has ahe committed himself to rehabilitating himself? number one he blames the judge because the trial came too fast and blames a huge conspiracy which consists of lawyers, prosecutors, psychologists to convict him of this crime. finally, and most startingly, he blames the victims, the boys who brought t
the president outlined goals during the debate, they were largely defensive. >> i think he was criticizing the ryan-esque vision on medicare and taxes. it's hard to say what else he displayed passion about. i have felt all year this is the biggest hole in their campaign. i don't think he has given americans a clear sense of what he would do to make the next four years better than the last four years. there was almost no second-term agenda. things that have been -- what is it that obama himself wants to do? certainly in this next debate he's going to be more aggressive. can he be more persuasive about his own plans? >> and mitt romney ought to be more aggressive in pushing the president to talk about his agenda. because of course the president is tying him to the ryan budget, for better or worse, what is he going to do about medicare, what's he going to do about tax reform. it is true that romney hasn't put a lot of meat on the bones when it comes to what he would do to reform the tax code. what deductions would he cap. he started getting at that a little bit this past week. well, then why
on our nation's defense than we do on defending gobs of tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires. the senator, herself, i think voted against the sequestration move. paul ryan voted for it. i do believe. it is an irresponsible path, and, i'm confident that after this election, this we'll find a way to reprioritize... >> chris: if you are so concerned about the middle class, why not let these workers know they may be laid off? >> chris, none of those employers wanted to send out those warn notices. why would you do that, when... >> >> chris: obviously the law was passed, they didn't want the employers to decide, they wanted to force them to notify their workers. >> to cause that sort of disruption about something that, all of us as americans, trust, and believe that our congress will be able to work out... >> chris: why would you believe co anything. >> well, chris, because the devastation to the economy would be so great. look i oftentimes disagree with my counterpart, bob mcdonald of virginia but we share a region of science and security and jobs depend on our ability to put a g
and he is in a dead heat, as you know right now. if he plays prevent defense and i know his consultants are going to want him to be very, very careful and not make a mistake. that's how you will lose to barack obama. in the radio clip, my point was, he is going to come out swinging and he's going to come out maybe with a few punches below the belt. romney is going to do what he did in the first debate. that is, american voters are very interested in style, maybe even more style over substance and that was the first debate you've ever seen where barack obama was outstyled. body language, mitt romney looked much more presidential and come out mitt romney and continue to strike contrasts say that we are not a government with a country, we're a country with a government and empower the people in every way possible and point out that, you know, americans have lost 40% of their net worth under this administration. as you pointed out earlier, gas prices are twice as high. we have acts of war on anniversaries of 9/11 with no response other than appointing the task force to understand whether it
year, the department of defense has been working closely with other agencies to understand where are the lines of responsibility when it comes to cyber defense? where do we draw those lines? how do those responsibilities get executed? as part of that effort, the department is now finalizing the most comprehensive change to our rules of engagement in cyberspace in seven years. the new rules will make clear that the department has a responsibility not only to be thin d.o.d.'s networks -- to networks, but to defend the nation and our natural -- national interests in cyberspace. these new rules makes the department more agile and provides us with the ability to confront major threats quickly. to execute these responsibilities, we must have strong organizational structures in place. three years ago, the department took a major step forward by establishing the united states cyber command. under the leadership of a four start officer who also served as the director of the national security agency, cyber command has matured into what i believe it is a world-class organization. it has the
'hanlon, senior fellow with the 21st century defense initiative. two men better equipped for today i could not find. eugene, you have been a foreign correspondent in places as far afield as argentina and europe. you know the middle east. mitt romney says he wants to arm the syrian rebels with serious amounts of military hardware. i ask you, eugene, is america ready and willing to start a proxy war with iran on the road to damascus? >> well, good question, and first of all, i think you have to ask given the way romney has changed his policy in various areas, you have to ask is he serious about that. but if he is, that's the one sort of bit of news that came out of his speech today. it's not as if we're not already at least assisting in the arming of the rebels. there was an intelligence finding by president obama that said we could give covert aid essentially through our allies, through the saudis and the qataris, but we have discouraged them from providing heavy weapons because we're afraid those heavy weapons might fall into the hands of terrorists. so that is the one difference that i th
're not better off. the president needs to do a full throated defense of his presidency and not allow governor romney to define his presidency for him. this helps significantly. >> and, chris, quickly do we hear mitt romney continue to say that president obama doesn't understand the economy? does this put him in a box? >> well, to some extent but governor romney is going to use his statistics to paint his picture and we saw that. and i think this is one of the things that i would, you know, strongly recommend to the obama campaign. romney was a blizzard of statistics in that debate but a lot of them weren't true. the president has the ability to use statistics to attack and undercut governor romney's arguments. he needs to go into the next debate. a lot of people are going to be watching given the last debate and he needs to go right at governor romney and completely destroy this notion that reinventing himself, let alone introducing and proposing the same policies are going to create a different outcome. he can definitely do that. we've seen that. >> right wing conservative talking points dyi
clear that for the first time, the president was put on the defensive as far as his record is concerned. and that's because of this bubble he's been in for the last four years and he obviously couldn't defend it. finally, piers, i thought one of the seminal moments in that debate was near the end, when jim lehrer talked about the lack of bipartisanship, the lack of sitting down together and averting this fiscal cliff that most americans know we're headed towards, and mitt talked about being governor of massachusetts, reaching across the aisle, having to negotiate, et cetera. the president's responses, sometimes you have to say no to people. is that, you know, and the fact is first two years, as mitt pointed out, first two years of his presidency, they just rammed things through without a single republican vote. so i think those were -- that makes it probably one of the really more important debates in american history and perhaps i'm exaggerating because i'm so happy. >> i can't blame you. i can't blame any republicans because it's been a very bruising few weeks for the republicans and
was put on the defensive as far as his record is concerned. and that's because of this bubble he's been in for the last four years, and he obviously couldn't defend it. and finally, piers, i thought one of the solemn moments in that debate was when jim lehrer talked about avoiding this cliff we're walking towards, and romney talked about walking across this abyss. the president's response was sometimes you have to say no to people? and mitt said the first two years of his presidency, they just rammed things through without a single republican vote. that makes it probably one of the more important debates in american history, and perhaps i'm exaggerating because i'm so happy. >> i can't blame you. i can't blame any republicans because it's been a very bruising few weeks for the republicans and mitt romney, and then suddenly everything seems to have turned on its head. you're in a unique position because you've debated against both mitt romney and barack obama. interestingly, romney is believed from the latest polls to have won 67% to 25%. when you went head to head with obama in 2008, th
a defensive position. the president has been attacked. i think it's time to return the favor to romney. your thoughts this week. >> it's what he had to do in the debate, didn't do, and it's what he has to do every day between now and the next debate. he has to draw the contrast on medicare and straighten out this myth that the president cut $716 million from medicare benefits. he didn't. they're cut from medicare providers like insurance companies that are overcharging. he has to attack on the issue of taxes. there aren't enough tax loopholes or tax deductions to pay for romney's tax cut unless you cut into home interest mortgage deductions, unless you get rid of state and local taxes. that will hit the middle class hard. you have to be honest about this. the debate hurt obama and helped romney, and romney's gotten a bump in the polls, although it seems to be flattening out. you look at the new poll in ohio, the president is at 51%, ronl is at 47%. i think the president, the fundamental structure of the race hasn't been changed, but if he doesn't go on the attack, if biden doesn't do a good
later this morning is reverse some of those steep defense cuts that are part of that fiscal cliff that is looming at the end of the year. and here is one excerpt from the speech that we'll be hearing from mitt romney later on this morning. it goes after a chief theme of president obama. not only over his presidency but over his first campaign. here it is. it says, quote, i know the president hopes for a safer, freer and more prosperous middle east allied with the united states. i share this hope. but hope is not a strategy. we cannot support our friends and defeat our enemies in the middle east when our words are not backed up by deeds, when our defense spending is being arbitrarily and deeply cut, when we have no trade agenda to speak of and the perception of our strategy is not one of partnership, but of passivity. soledad, yesterday some of his senior foreign policy advisers had a conference call with reporters. they were sort of laying out some presidencies of past that they think mitt romney might share some of these principles with. and the presidencies that they mentioned w
in the middle east when our words are not backed up by deeds, when our defense spending is being deeply cut off, when we have no trade agenda to speak of, and the perception of our strategy is not one of partnership but of passivity. host: that was mitt romney yesterday. it garnered a headline in "usa today" -- how much of the speech was against president obama and what he's done and how much of it was laying on his own trajectory and agenda? guest: mostly in his role as a challenger, this is about a critique of the obama foreign- policy. that's a very common tactic by challengers. there were some good lines. he talked about hope is not a strategy. he's trying to emphasize his critique of obama as leading from behind, which was from an unnamed administration official at the end of a 8000 word new yorker magazine piece last year. it has become a staple of republican critics of the president's foreign-policy. there are some real differences between obama and romney when it comes to foreign policy. those are substantive. romney has called a rush of the -- called russia the number one geopolitical
to pbs, the obama administration chose satire as a defense. >> mitt romney knows it's not wall street you have to worry about, it's sesame street. >> reporter: she didn't use sarcasm but even the first lady criticized mitt romney's plan. >> we all know good and well cutting sesame street is no way to balance the budget. >> reporter: his pledge to slash public broadcasting's funding is one of the ways he hopes to cut excessive funding and is taking exception to president obama using sarcasm to counter his plan. >> these are tough times with serious issues, so you have to scratch your head when the president spends the last week talking about saving big bird. >> reporter: it's a please sage president obama doesn't seem to be letting go of any time soon. i'll tell you who haven't liking this. pbs asked for the ads to be taken down. no word if it will be pulled any time soon. >>> we know at this point president obama struggled mightily in last week's debate. coming up, why it didn't have to be that way. anita? >>> jerry sandusky took their innocence, their courage in court has now taken away
11th attack. eyewitnesss told us it was a complex assault. the compound's first line of defense easily breached. according to one of the libyan guards who was stationed at the gate armed with only a radio, the assault happened simultaneously from three different directions. he says that he initially heard chanting growing increasingly louder and then suddenly the gunfire, the rocket-propelled grenades and heavy machine gunfire all began attacking the compound. this is where ambassador chris stephens slept, part of a small suite also meant to be a makeshift safe room. here on the floor between the bed and the chair is where cnn found the ambassador's journal. it is also the same room where the ambassador was located hours after the attack first began. separated by smoke from his security detail. the u.s. initially said the assault was the result of a demonstration that turned violent. >> putting together the best information that we have available to us today, our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just
prisoners and stop killing civilians. that's not expected to happen before today's deadline. >>> defense secretary leon panetta says a thank you instead of criticism would be welcome for afghan president hamid karzai for the sacrifices american troops have made. his remark followed karzai's accusation that the u.s. isn't doing enough to fight terror in neighboring pakistan. relations between the u.s. and afghanistan have steadily been eroding in recent months. >>> other stories making headlines around the world now. first at the vet can where pope benedict's former butler was just sentenced to 18 months in prison for leaking confidential papers. paulo gabriel was convicted this morning of left. the book, based on his leaked papers, revealed possible corruption in the catholic church hierarchy. gabriel told the court he leaked the papers out of love for the church and didn't field like a thief. >>> and in india american football is the new sport hoping to gain pop logan airport. the new league is made of teams from india, pakistan and sri lanka. they have names like the delhi defenders. s
seem like the president was trying to play defense and not make any mistakes because he was up at least in this race pretty handily in the swing states. not mentioning the 47% in that video, that was stunning. >> is it too late and later debates to come back with that now? you know, i liken it to a boxer almost. go back to your corner, you figure out what you didn't do right perhaps. but at that point is it too late? has america forgotten about the 47%? >> no, i don't think so. i think he can do that. not as effectively, because the first debate is usually the more watched debate. president george w. bush had a poor performance against john kerry and came back strong. last night the president was mocking his own performance. you have to accept you didn't do well, and come back and bring it to romney. but he's going to have to do that. >> okay. mitt romney, on the other hand, had a strong showing. what does he need to do to maintain any momentum he might have picked up? >> i think this presents the romney campaign with something they needed. they needed to hit the reset button. they need

if president obama were to go on the defensive or on the offensive to mitt romney, how would that be perceived? would he have been thought of as the tough incumbent fighting back or thought of as the angry black man? this has come up as a narrative in part because on monday, before the debate, you had tucker carlson dropping this 2007 hampton speech as though it were prefacing the possibility of the president behaving that way so they could link it. let's take a look at what showed up on monday. >> when hurricane andrew struck expect you to come up with the, here's the money to rebuild. we're not going to wait for you to scratch it together. because you're part of the american family. what's happening down in new orleans? where's your dollar? where's your stafford act money? makes no sense. tells me the bullet hasn't been taken out. >> so there's the president doing what so many of us, as african-americans do, he's code switching. he's speaking to an mask american audience, he has the fire. just two days before the debate this dropped and the narrative is somehow the president's an angry black
